Gilded Cloud World

Psalm 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.

God wrote His-story in the stars where no human hand could corrupt it. It's been there all along above our heads. The story is summed up in Genesis 3:15. With His story being written, the teaching of the story in the heavens faded away and has been corrupted by some doing pop astrology to satisfy themselves with knowledge of themselves instead of finding the satisfaction of their part in His story.

The sky is divided into 12 "houses". Where does the story start? How would we ever know where we break into this circle? God left us a signpost. The word sphinx comes from the Greek "sphingo" which means "to join" as in to join two ends of a circle. The Sphinx has the head of a woman (virgin-virgo) and the body of a lion (leo). His story in the heavens starts in Virgo - and ends in Leo.

Jeremiah 32:19-20
19 Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for Thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:
20 Which has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made Thee a name, as at this day;

The stars were named and grouped together by God. Some of the original names still exist and researching into their names and groupings is a very interesting search into His plan.

Beautiful photo! It's amazing how much the sky changes during each day, and it is a constant reminder of God's infinite creativity.

Hello, Sue (Soo). I am not sure who you are? I've read your link. Obviously, I disagree. Dr. Bullinger was the only Christian who was allowed to work on the original manuscripts. I respect his work greatly and find it aligns with God's Word. Your link quotes other men. I leave your comment so others can make up their own minds. I will put information out there on my own blog that I have come to believe is the truth after many years of study. I don't insist others believe as I do, or stop by my blog if they disagree. I trust that God will guide everyone as He sees fit.
